Fractal Design Define R2 - Black Pearl
 
I dont know if anyone knows anything about this EU based company, but they are known for some of the best (and silent,) fans in the world. Fractal Design has also launched a new case. Introducing the Define R2. They are only available in the EU, so those who have a little more cash to spend for something insanely unique, this is your chance. It looks to me to be a good mix of the Antec P series, with a shade of Lian-Li and Corsair, taking what made all those cases great and improving on it.

Gorgeous! At last, another case manufacturer has realized that no one in the world need more than 2-3 optical drives and therefore 5.25 spaces. Looks great! Sound dampening everywhere Im assuming?

I just put in a request to review one of their cases for the site here. If they send one, i'll use it as my audition for the review team lol.
I put forth a pretty convincing letter, so we'll see if they decide to give this budding reviewer a chance lol.

Yup, its all sound dampening material.

As long as the power button isn't hidden behind the door, it looks like a very nicely built case.

From everything I've seen, it looks like the power, USB and audio jacks are at the top front of the case.

I love all the HDD bays, just not a fan of the design of the case for some reason http://smiliesftw.com/x/dunno.gif

I'm not a big fan either, it just looks like an antec p182 or whatever that model is
